PH 6½-6


The trumpet-shaped top shade provides illumination of the area above the three lower shades, which primarily direct the light downwards. A base reflector and a blue glare ring protect against glare from all angles. The strongest light is directly under the fixture. The shades have a matte white painted finish to ensure very comfortable lighting.

Poul Henningsen, known as PH, was a Danish author, architect, and critic who played a leading role in Denmark's cultural life between the World Wars. The illegitimate son of author Agnes Henningsen and satirist Carl Ewald, he enjoyed a happy childhood in a progressive home in Ordrup, frequented by prominent literary figures. Although he studied architecture from 1911 to 1917, he never graduated and later explored inventing and painting.

Henningsen's most significant contribution was in lighting design. He created the PH-lamp in 1925, using innovative techniques to provide glare-free, uniform illumination. Produced by Louis Poulsen, his renowned models, including the PH Artichoke and PH5, funded his subsequent work.

His other notable designs include the PH Grand Piano, featured in several major 20th-century design collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. He also designed the Glassalen for Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
